  • Excerpt: "...to the superb atmosphere of F1 World GP. Unfortunately, it is surprisingly easy, but makes up for that addictive gameplay. The sound system leaves much to be desired, which I hope will be fixed in the sequel, which I tip to knock Mario Party off number 1. I recommend you play as Pyrite, Hill, or if you cheat, Silver and Gold. It doesn't really matter though, like most racing games, the cars are mainly in contrast with one another, the ...

  • Excerpt: "...However, i got home with F1 WGP and played constantly for 18 hours, getting used to the handling, which is amazing. I then woke up the next morning and began a season, which is very in depth. i decided to be patriotic so i chose Johnny Herbert. I started in easy mode cos although id had a lot of practice, i wasnt THAT confident in my ability. after half the season (id played 100% ditances and the full qualifying etc) which had taken me around 3 ...

  • Excerpt: "This game simulates the 1997 season. My first impression of it was that the graphics are really good and quite realistic - I've found this with quite a few N64 games. This is a very enjoyable game, although at first I found it quite difficult to control the cars. This was especially the case when I used the steering wheel, until I got the sensitivity setting correct. I like the fact that you can have two player games, it means that you can practice ...
  • Pros: There are lots of play modes to choose from (such as two player games, scenarios etc)
  • Cons: It is quite difficult to get the steering sensitivity right if you use a steering wheel

  • Excerpt: "Hmmmm no one has written an opinion on this superb game?!? Well i'll be the first then. This game is very enjoyable, with a wide range of drivers and tracks and some bonus drivers and tracks it can entertain a person for hours. With Jacques Villenauve (sorry i don't know how to spell his name?!?) deciding that he doesnt want to be a part of the game, the driver that he would have been - D. Williams - is the key to the cheats. The only drawback ...

  • Excerpt: "This game emulates the 1997 World Grand Prix, and you'd believe it were real if it weren't for the lack of g's and wind rushing past. All the tracks from the 1997 Grand Prix are present, and are accurately simulated. You can even set up the weather to reflect the conditions from 1997, which is a nice touch. The game has the usual Practice, Time Trial etc modes, but I went straight to the Championship or Grand Prix mode. Here you are given a ...
  • Pros: Realistic sim, nice touches
  • Cons: can grow tedious after a while

  • Excerpt: "...are the cars.Most of the f1 drivers are available as playable characters of course in there appropiate racing car,And surprisingly the controls handle well......a problem which has plagued most n64 racers, such as f1 pole position.I would rate this game as 8/10 but would probably only recommend it to die hard racing fans as it can get a bit tideous at times.A good game overall would be more fun if there was a better mulitplayer option for up to four ...

  • Excerpt: "...to be the most realistic F1 simulator I have played. This game is best played with the wheel and pedals, it givces such a brilliant realisam to it. It has the usual options for setting the controls to an easier method, such as no damage auto gears, etc. On the hardest levels this game is hard, and takes a lot of time to get used to it, but it is definatly worth the effort as it makes the game so much better to play. The graphics are completly outstanding ...

  • Excerpt: "With the excellent F1 97 on the Playstation, Paradigm had a huge task to produce a game of the same or better standard. The job was made considerably easier by the fact that Paradigm had the F1A licence and so could use the real driver names, teams, sponsors and track design. With the tat F1 pole position, the task of producing the best F1 game on the N64 was not terribly difficult. When you switch the machine on you get a wonderful ...
